And then to hopefully eviscerate.

A friend sent this to me on FacePalm. As I started reading, the rumblings of impending, acute gastrointestinal distress began low in my bowels. Temporary relief was provided by seeing shows from Jerry Garcia Band and Phil on the list....but it was only temporary. By the time I got to the top 7, I had been retching and dry heaving for several minutes. Seeing the Grateful Dead mentioned in the top 3 provided some additional relief....but then I saw #1 and immediately suffered a significant emotional event involving volcanic reverse peristalsis....

JGB 10/31/92 should be on the list. Jer had returned from rehab(?), illness(?)....whatever. He was in high spirits and the MUSIC shined.

I was at 10/31/91 also, it was good but it's legend has probably grown beyond the strength of the performance. It was more a heavy time than a superb show.

The Phish Halloween show... I have an official release of the show and I find it to be rather boring. Trey singing Harrison is none short of appalling.

10-31-71 might have one the best single sets the Grateful Dead performed on any night. My list could start and stop right there.

Your friend should have sent a Quaalude and some Maalox too.
Imo that's a good list. Umphrey’s, Kimock, P-Groove,
Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, moe, Zappa, Little Feat? and all the important ones that you mentioned? Come on.
That number one did hurt I will admit.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmfAP6qypC4. Phish really
goes all out for their Halloween shows~ you cant knock that.
I just prefer not to listen to them. Number 1? Iffy at best...
Try this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIn9sQxzxTw versus
any 1984 GD version> (PUKE bucket in hand first!)
Basically I like the list. Some of those dates are dated,
and I would love to see the GD, JG, or Phil as numero uno, but all in all, not too shabby imho.

Im still trying to figure out if that was a trick or a treat

Having been to the Halloween concert listed as #1, I can only say I am sorry to hear of your intestinal distress. Maybe it was from a bad veggie burrito or something, because that show was one of the best concerts I ever saw out of hundreds.

Mind you, the Phish show really is not there just because it's a good concert. It's there for the same reason you see Citizen Kane listed in so many top movie lists... it changed the genre and set so many standards that are still being used today. The Phish Halloween show did something no other band ever tried to do: Wear a musical costume.

You make good points as well, I agree. Its all subjective.

"If that's the case then wearing a standard halloween is just fully grown person dressing like a moron in public."~~

I thought that's what Halloween was all about.

I tried to dress like the Headless Horseman for a week in March at work. Did not float.

Halloween and music is a free-for-all. Let what happens happen.

"Wear a musical costume."

Isn't that just a fancy way of saying that they played a bunch of cover songs?

Sure, if you want to assume that anything you don't like is an inferior product.

If that's the case then wearing a standard halloween is just fully grown person dressing like a moron in public.

But in fact they tried to emulate even the conversation between songs. In short, they tried to reproduce the whole album live. Something few bands could pull off. It takes way too much practice that most bands wouldn't bother with.

What genre are we talking about?

Who's standards?

Standards for what?

Used by who?

To compare what?

Pretty sure the gastro-intestinal distress wasn't linked to either the veggie burrito, nor the heady grilled cheese. No, I'm convinced it was the old Phish that prompted the wretching.

OK, sorry about that one. Though Phish isn't my "cup of tea", I realize musical taste is very subjective and I try not to rag on anybody else's tastes. But c'mon man, I just could let that slow slider get by me.

As Dr. Sheldon Cooper would say, "Bazinga!"

"Have you noticed that the very notion of Halloween itself has taken on a greater prominence in American culture since the mid-nineties. Coincidence? "

More like stoooooopidity...

WTF is this bozo talking about?

Phish changed the world man!

I wonder if he ever made it to the Halloween Parade in Greenwich Village - now that is how one celebrates Halloween! Has been for a long time before Trey even learned to pull his own.

When you don't move out of your parents basement until you turn 23 you wind up missing a lot of action....

Took my wife to the parade on her first visit to the US (just a little over a year after the velvet revolution and her first time outside communist czechoslvokia). She was watching the sweet young man and his "father" hold hands and then her eyes grew bug eyed in amazement as they exchanged a long, passionate kiss. It was an eye opener but she had a blast and had gay friends in Prague that were harassed (sadly, stuff in Russia is just simmering elsewhere). That year featured a lot of teletubbies and jerry falwells (due to his comment at the time re gay agenda of teletubbies). Anyway, one of the funnest halloweens I ever had.

I almost never get to say this but...
I was at the Zappa Show at the Palladium in '78 with my older brother Dennis. One of the great concert going experiences of my life.
Miss you Frank.

I also saw the GD at Nassau on Halloween '79 which was a fine show in itself, although not particularly scary or spooky.

Must have been a Frank ritual. My best friend did Bikecentennial in '76 - I flew back East in the Fall to cruise around with him and we ended up in NYC. Frank on Halloween. Pretty sure at the Palladium.

Not sure what the criteria was for voting but my old roommate used to see oingo boingo every Halloween in either irvine or universal and he said those shows were always great. Special as well since elfman was scoring movies and these were the only live shows the band would ever play during that time

What's with all the jammy bands? My favorite is a Bruce Springsteen concert that I saw 30 plus years ago at the LA Sports Arena. They carried a coffin out onto the stage and, after an appropriately dragged out scarey music and lights segment, Bruce jumped out, the band went nuts and they played some old rocknroll song (named Haunted House of course). We all went crazy. Of course the fact that the E-Street band was at the height of its powers didn't hurt either.
